Terrific place to have a nice quiet dinner.
The steaks are great and all of the service staff that you interface with are outstanding - particularly our waitress Belinda.

My husband and I went to Ruth Chris in Garden City NY for my birthday dinner.
I ordered a Cowboy ribeye (med-well) with a blue cheese crust.
My husband ordered a t-bone (med). sweet potato casserole and the brussell spouts were the sides. We also ordered a bottle of wine.
My husband said his steak was ok and was cooked right.
My ribeye on the other hand was for a lack of a better term cooked beyond well done. No pink at all in the steak as the waiter said it would be. The ribeye was in my opinion burnt. The steak was also very chewy almost like gum ( just chewing on gristle). I could not eat this steak. The manger ran by when we first sat down and asked how we were doing, then came by when the food first came out, never to be seen again! When the waiter Alex came back he asked how my steak was I told him all of the above, He then said it would be 20 mins to have another steak prepared. I I had it made to go because my husband was just about done and I was really disappointed in my night. The manger never returned. We skipped dessert and headed home.
The second ribeye was cooked to med and was much better cut of meat.

On a side note there is a sign on the front door about a dress code but it is not enforced . There were customers sitting at tables wearing stained white t shirts and gym shorts.

Also there was some kind of commotion in the lobby with people screaming call 911, The girls in the front were also yelling.

Masks worn by some employees under their noses, so why bother?

Ruth Chris is usually our go to place because of their consistency, now i'm going to have to rethink that decision.

For the amount of money we spent the service should have been outstanding. We made reservations and they sat us by the door next to a big party. The waiter was terrible. Seemed to be annoyed at everything. Just would drop things down on the table and run. Never refilled water. Left dirty dishes on table. He got a 20% tip but definitely didn’t deserve it. Sorry for a steak house and for those prices there should be no complaints

Service - Outstanding...Melanie could be one of the top 5 waitresses I have ever had. Beyond friendly but not annoying...

Food Excellent...T-bone steak for 2 cooked the way each of us like (medium for my wife, and medium rare for me). Not all places can cook one steak for 2 the way both like it, the super hot plate helps too.

Beverages - Lowest rating. My wife, who rarely sends anything back, had to send back her Stoli-O Cosmo 2X and settle for a glass of Stolio-O with a little Cranberry Juice. I have watched her order that drink a thousand times and have never seen it come out so dark or cloudy. We were appropriately credited but that drink probably should have been on the house.

Overall, a very nice dinner.

Food was excellent and server was a pleasant chap.
But we got the wrong dessert, and the water server was AWOL for most of our experience. Very challenging to get refills.

Restaurant is showing its age. Bathroom is disgusting.
Food is mediocre. Items in the menu are no longer available like stuffed chicken. Poor experience.

We were celebrating two wedding anniversaries.
The food was excellent, but your restaurant did not have in stock some items that were on the menu.
The service was a bit slow, but we attributed that to short-staffing.

Everything is always great every time we go to Ruth Chris. The only thing is the pre fix 3 course meal left me hungry most of the night. I should have just ordered off the regular menu as my wife and I always do.

I live out of state and wanted to arrange a surprised dinner for my parents anniversary. The manager William assisted me with all the details, I emailed him the information he requested he called me back promptly confirming he received everything. He greeted my parents and made sure everything was perfect and my parents had a memorable evening.

Meal was good, but no veal chop, no grilled chicken, no broiled shrimp, no fries, no baked potato, no onion rings
We need more choices…. No key lime, no valet….
My husband ordered medium rare and got RARE… he’d never complain.
We made it work but they need to expand, I understand it’s a steakhouse but… we need CHOICES.

Waiter 5 star, drinks 5 star… staff very very good!

I have been here many times. It was horrible today. NY strip was so fatty and had so much grizzle in it there was hardly any meat to eat .Brussels sprouts tasted old and the restaurant is getting dirty. This used to be so good not ever going back.

We recently had dinner at Ruth Chris for the first time since the pandemic started , we were placed in a booth which had a used napkin on the floor and a used mask on the seat. The Ahi tuna was delicious and the stuffed chicken was amazing, however the Brussel sprouts were hard and undercook. The décor at Ruth Chris requires modernization, the interior feels dated

After 20+ years of making Ruth Chris in Garden City our special place for Anniversaries, Birthday’s and Date Nights, I can honestly say I may never go back again. I always viewed the Garden City location the flagship of The Ruth Chris chain, we’ve been to many within and outside the US and regardless have always had excellent service, perfect steaks and overall an outstanding experience. Our last visit on Saturday July 10 wasn’t even close to what we’d come to expect of this restaurant. Service was extremely slow, they ran out of some of the flagship steaks on the menu, side portions were much smaller than they always have been, and both meals were not cooked to our liking or the quality standard you come to expect from Ruth Chris.

our family has been dining at the Garden City location for many years celebrating special events such as birthdays and anniversaries. The food is amazing as always, was looking for some items that were removed from the menu (Tomato and onion (appetizer) and Grilled Tomato, (side-dish) but overall nothing was missing from being a perfect diner. The only disappointment was at the entrance, when the restaurant was almost empty, beside one couple sitting in the back, at 4:30 PM and the hostess was not willing to sit us ride-away seeing us holding a baby 16 months old, wanting us to wait for the entire party (two more were on their way). It was disappointing.
